Speaking Engagements & Handy News


I’m currently cruising at the over 10,000 feet altitude (gotta LOVE in flight wi-fi!) and headed to Salt Lake City to attend SNAP later this week. Say a prayer that I don’t catch the stomach bug that claimed another family member this morning. Currently Buddy and I are the last ones standing (where is there wood on an airplane to knock?!!!) Anyway, I’ll be giving a talk about DIY Residential Lighting and Electrical Upgrades while there. If you are at SNAP, I hope you’ll pull me aside to say hi. Please forgive me if we’ve met and I forgot your name. I’m HORRIBLE with names, but pretty good with faces. 😉


Then on Monday, I’ll be back on the East coast for a talk at the “Habitat for Humanity of Greater Greensboro” ReStore for Earth Day. If you are in the area, come check out the celebration on Monday, April 22nd at noon. The address is: 3826 High Point Rd. Greensboro, NC 27407 (Ignore the address on the website, it is misleading.)

I’m sure I won’t be able to resist some shopping and chatting afterwards, so stick around and I’ll tell you all the wonderful things my mind sees when I wander around the ReStore!

If you can’t make it, I hope you have a great Earth Day and do something green that day.


Don’t forget I have an awesome giveaway going on right now from Everyday Icing.

pretty handy giveaway collage-1

I’m in love with their jewelry and accessories! I wore one of their necklaces yesterday and received several compliments.

Finally, if you left me a comment on the Embellished HERSHEY’S KISSES carrying cases tutorial, you won some HERSHEY’S KISSES and a carry case! Congrats! Check your email and reply to me as soon as possible.



  1. So awesome that you’re doing this, more of us ladies should just get in there and get our ands dirty! There’s no shame;) It’s not just mans work, and with just a bit of knowledge we accomplish tasks in our home that once intimidated us! Have fun at SNAP, wish I could attend!

  2. I wish I was going to SNAP! (so many conferences so little money and vacation time haha)

    I would have loved the chance to have met you :) Will you be at Haven this year, I am thinking about going for the first time and I am super excited!!!

    Good luck with all of your speeches….knock em dead :)

  3. There is no such thing as a man’s job and a woman’s job except for making babies. Other than that, there is nothing and no reason a woman can’t do everything a man does when it comes to construction, electrical, plumbing, or anything that is mentally challenging and physically exerting.

    I sure hope you escape the stomach bug and will enjoy SNAP. I’m excited about my kisses. Thanks again.

  5. Hey B!

    I just sent you another email. Take a peek when you get the chance! I hope you are feeling better!!!


  6. Just saw you leaving the SLC airport…I was with a crazy big family taking a group pic 😉
    Just thought I would say hello and tell you you have a fun blog, since I missed telling you in person!

    • Jenny, Oh my gosh! You were with that cute family?! I was thinking how awesome that you were all in one place and could get such a great photo ;-).

      • Haha, it was when you turned to look at our craziness that I recongnized you :)
        If you are familiar with Utah and our LDS missionaries, you will see families crying and taking pics all the all the time! When they leave and come home, it’s kinda funny to watch. Have fun at SNAP!

  7. Ack! I’m sooo disappointed that I won’t be able to come hear you speak in Greensboro on Earth Day!!!! I’m tied up with a group of bloggers going to the High Point Furniture Market. If I could, you know I would be there. I know you’ll be fantastic. PS: I hope the stomach bug stays far, far away! I knocked on wood for you. lol

  8. I hope you didn’t catch that bug so you can enjoy SNAP! Have lots of fun!
